    One thought on “Raven”

    1. An amalgam of suspense fiction and dark (urban) fantasy, this book is a quirky but enjoyable romp that manages to retain an impressive helping of respectability given the subject matter. At first the protagonist comes across a bit like Jason Bourne, trying to piece together his identity bit by bit, but it quickly becomes apparent that this isn’t a story that Robert Ludlum would have written.Despite also being a tale of the “Cleveland Undead”, Raven isn’t very similar to The Flesh, the Bl [...]

    2. I first happened upon this book in 1997 as a teenager, lacking funds to buy it, I remembered it, but could never find it. At last, at a used bookstore I found it staring up at me and I picked it up. Before I began to read it, I feared this would be a lame direct to paperback vampire novel with nothing to offer, perhaps even be amateurish. After 14 years, could it live up to what I imagined it would be as a teenager? It did, and then some. Clever, intelligent writing with interesting, mysterious [...]

    3. I picked this up at a second hand store because it looked like an nice fluffy vampire read for me when I traveled. I ended up enjoying it much more than I thought I would! It's an interesting blend of horror, action, and mystery from the view of a freshly-turned ex-cop.I'd recommend this book to anyone who's craving gritty yet unique vampires. It's got a few nice throw-backs to the more shape shifting vampire abilities found in Dracula to the more modern day concept of vampire societies. All in [...]

    4. Okay, I'm going to rate this seperately as book 1 and 2 are very different. I'd give Raven 3 starts. On the plus side we had an amnesiac ex cop who had to figure everything out and come to terms with having being turned into a vampire, it had some good world building, I loved the sense of winter that pervaded all the scenes. On the down side, his wife and most of the side characters are uninteresting and flat, everyone dies, we don't know how or why he was turned, suprise who-dun-it reveal endin [...]

    5. Raven is about a ex-cop who is now a private investigator. He wakes up and has no clue who or where he is, and to top it off, he's a vampire. Sounds intriguing, does it not?Yeah, well that's what I thought. The book was ok, but I found it to be really slow and a bit all over the place. I pushed myself to finish it. Would I recommend it? No, unless your just looking for something to take up your time in between reading something better. Who knows, some of you may enjoy it more than I did.
